There are many types of men’s watches out there. Some people just narrow it down to
either automatic or quartz watches, but there are actually a lot of different watch types
available on the market today.
One of the best watches in terms of design is the skeleton watch. You will know if it is
that particular watch when you can clearly see the inner workings of the timepiece.
Now, not a lot of people love looking at skeleton watches because it is indeed more of a
preference thing, but one cannot argue the fact that these watches are intricately made.
One misconception that sadly still prevails to this day is that a skeleton watch, at least in
terms of its design, is not as sturdy as other watches. This is just not true. It is as sturdy
as your regular automatic watch. In fact, there are some watchmaking companies that
also add other things to bolster their build quality, if anything.
If you are on the market to find the best skeleton watches, then you’re going to want to
read this article, because today, I am going to talk about some of the best in the market.
1. Fossil Townsman ME3041
This is a rather big watch at 44mm. Encased in stainless steel and coupled with leather
calfskin strap, mineral crystal, and roman numeral hour markers (not to mention that
they glow in the dark), the Fossil ME3041 is definitely one of the best out there. And, it
only costs $400 which makes this the cheapest on the market as well.
My only gripe with this watch is that it could potentially gain or lose a few minutes every
week and that is simply because of its automatic watch movement (and not the actual
2. Stuhrling Original Men’s Symphony Automatic
This watch is another big one at 44mm, has a leather calfskin strap, a second subdial, a
Krysterna crystal, and it also has an automatic watch movement as well.
Despite the fact that this is one of the bigger skeleton watches out in the market, it is
incredibly lightweight for its size.
My gripe with this is that it doesn’t have a glow-in-the-dark feature, but for $150, I
wouldn’t really complain.
3. Thomas Earnshaw Men’s Bauer Mechanical Skeleton Watch
This is the epitome of a skeleton watch as you can really see the watch’s internals in full
force. It is quite comfortable to wear and the fact that you can select the strap and the
color of it makes it more appealing to the masses.
Keep in mind that because it is a mechanical watch, it will require you to manually wind
the watch every day to ensure continuous operation. But from an appearance
standpoint, it is one of the best in the market.
4. Breguet Tradition Black Skeleton Dial
This watch is sleek at only 37mm, has a sapphire crystal, and its watch case and the
bezel are made of 18k white gold.
Being one of the more expensive options out there, this is the watch you want to get if
you have a lot of money.
Despite the fact that it is a mechanical watch, its mechanism can actually hold up to 50
hours of power instead of the usual 24 hours.
Aside from that, the mechanism is one of the more accurate ones for its class in the
